New Bridges

The Nectar bridge, which has been under construction for several weeks, has been completed and is now open to traffic.

The structure is a lattice covered bridge and spans the Warrior river near Nectar. It is over 400 feet in length.

The Yarbrough bridge across Little Warrior has also been re-built. It is 200 feet in length.

Both of these bridges were built by D.F. Tidwell.

Holcombe’s Chickens Win Prizes

His pen of Leghorn pullets were classed as the best on exhibition, taking first prize. He also got first and second prize on individual pullets, and second prize on pen Leghorn hens and fourth prize on Leghorn cockerels.

He had only two birds on exhibit that failed to take a prize.
